Mr Nixon - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   No report was called for. However, at my direction my Department prepared a proposal for the introduction of legislation to establish a consumer protection authority in the Australian Capital Territory.

(2)   The recommendation is that a consumer protection organisation be established for the Territory along the lines already established in New South Wales.

(3)   No report will be published. However, in accordance with long standing procedure I have advised the A.C.T. Advisory Council of the proposals.
